Subject: A Matrix?
Let's face it, this sdb has pretty sub-par sound compared to other boards from the late 70's. I guess it's kind of a shock it even exists, since for years we all believed there were no sdbs available from this tour. But, here it is. There is one well-circulated AUD (Gatto), but that's not the greatest sounding tape either.

That's why I think this might make a good candidate for a matrix ( are you listening Hunter). The boards hissy and muddy, and the audience is clappy and a little oversaturated. Might just make the worst matrix ever. Oh well, it just seems like too historic a show to wallow in such disrepair. Maybe not historic, but it is a great show---Sugaree, Jack Straw, Miracle, Estimated, Stella, Casey Jones are all great versions.

Thanks to Charlie Miller for doing what he could with the source material---What the hell happened to these tapes anyway???

Subject: Nice show
a reference to Clive Davis( Arista Records).
Reviewer: Dylan M - - January 18, 2011
Subject: It's all about Stella Blue
Highlights are Sugaree, Peggy O, Jack Straw, He's Gone, but especially Stella Blue where Jer's guitar gently weeps into a four minute outro solo.

The show itself is stellar, especially considering the "problems" in the organization at the time, and the band shift a month later. Too bad the pitch is off at times, and vocals are often dropped. Not sure if its a recording problem or if they just flubbed. Also Stella Blue thru Casey Jones sounds like an audience heavy matrix. Definitely well balanced though.

Thanks for this classic.
4 for sound
5 for a stellar show
0 for Donna's screaming at the end of Deal (yuck!)
SOLID 4 stars. Thank you Charlie!!!!
